Showing a truck decorated as a float, parked in a street in Marton on 21 July 1919. The date was dedicated to events involving children, in the schedule of celebrations marking the official proclamation of peace in July 1919. Sitting tightly packed in the back of the truck are little girls dressed as nurses. Two little boys dressed as soldiers stand in the centre of the group with an older child holding a Union Jack flag. Behind the truck a boy in costume is waving a long flag. Business premises with verandahs are visible in the background. A man on the far right is standing observing the scene.
